Mom needs to clean the basement so can everyone please log off and go outside for some fresh air?

Peace and love (and what's so funny about the same?)

Okay folks, we have had this discussion before, but I challenge each and everyone of you to listen to track 1, and track 10, disk 4, of the 68 mystery disks and not conclude that Jerry was the best lead guitarist, ever.

You MUST go to disk 4...you will not be disappointed. You may win a credenza.

Now I am really confused: is this non-dead or dead or non-maykers or maykers?

anyway, here is a fine 68 anniversary show for this Saturday:

Shrine Auditorium on 1968-08-23

Cryptical Envelopement-> The Other One-> Cryptical Envelopement, Dark Star-> Saint Stephen-> The Eleven-> Death Don't Have No Mercy, Alligator-> Drums-> Alligator-> Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks)

enjoy!!!

Hey V--this IS the fragment of the StSt I am talking about...by its structure, it appears close to the amazing, unreal version of June (6-14-68)...two more, further on in the mystery disks (bottom of 68 selections, chrono-speaking) provide two more versions that will melt your brain. Again, Dk 4, tr 1 & 10. Jerry is astounding.

Try it.

I tried - no credenza but at least I confirmed the accuracy of your claim.

I thought it might be based on the summer date...

though unfortunately I am without a sound card on this machine so I haven't been able to listen to them yet...though I have been listening to as many as I have from the period.

one question on 68-08-23 the new potato caboose seems to go into send in the clowns at the 5:10 mark or so but sondheim supposedly wrote it in 73. what's up with that?

maybe I am off on the broadway tune, but it sure sounds like jerry's soloing is send in the clowns. even if it isn't it is one extreme version of the song.

the send in the clowns new potato caboose...

You are to thank for this current obsession...I had never taken the time to go thru the 68 disks since disk one just has the "filler" from 8-23 on it...but, from your gift I took the time and discovered something I had been searching for this past two years: a rendition close to the amazing but forever damaged version of 6-14. Those two on disk 4 are not as intense, but they are identical in structure and bring new meaning to the tune for me.

My son listened and said he had never heard Jerry play like this--as if he were channeling Jimi or Eric...

WT,

That was an interesting listen. I know that we're comparing apples to oranges but to me this version of Stephen is one of the finest:

Also recommended are 1-11-78 and 12-31-78. Not as raw as those '68 versions but perhaps a little more polished.
